All business centres and commercial establishments remained closed while traffic remained thin. It is reported that the doctors attend only to the emergency cases in government hospitals. More than half a million patients have gravely suffered as a result of the doctors’ strike.

Go find our doctor first he is missing since 9 days God knows what he has been through. Media should highlight this incidence regularly and please do not be mistaken local doctors of Balochistan are treating emergency patients but still a senior doctor is missing one should value his life as well. He has two small kids and a family to feed, here in Quetta all doctors are average income earners so please its my request to find him and break the doors of the corrupt leaders of ours who are silent and not taking any action against there crooks.
